PIGSTY Artists

Anne Vålaug

I am an illustrator and graphic designer educated at Oslo Academy of the Arts (KHiO). I have worked for newspapers and as graphic designer in the furniture industry. In recent years I worked as a freelance illustrator.

My work usually starts with a repetition of a form, a colour palette I enjoy using, or I get inspired by something around me, small or big. I hope you will have as much pleasure in having one of my pictures on the wall, which I get from making them!

Christoph Lindner

Both electrical engineer and visual artist are reflected in Christoph’s passion to tell stories in pictures.

Born in Austria, having lived in Denmark, traveled the world and settled in Norway, there is a lot to tell.

Christoph cultivated his appetite to create and illustrate in several art classes at Reidar Finsrud Academy.

David Stenmarck

Born in Oslo, Norway. Living in Ås, Norway.

I work as an illustrator and an artist. I like to paint, draw, build and make things.

My work is colorful, organic and sort of abstract. I like to play with abstract sceneries from my imagination. I paint walls and make sculptures, but I always try to push my 2dimensjonal work to 3dimensjonal sculptures, either visually or physically.

Elin Liavik

Professionally Elin Liavik is a landscape architect, and there is no doubt that she has a good eye for both landscape and architecture.

She is interested in details, small limited pieces of reality which perhaps tell a story as well as "the big picture".

A returning theme in Elin's images are abandoned places, houses someone has lived in or industrial areas with the distinctive light of emptiness and decay, their colours and textures.

Furthermore, Elin was one of the first “cell phone photographers” in Norway who was invited to show her work in art galleries based on her Instagram photos.

Elin Mack

Elin Mack usually works with collage based on materials she finds in the city, on streets and subway station walls. In this project, she has photographed details of the walls she usually «steals» raw materials from. The photographs, of urban walls with their remains of partially torn-down posters, have evolved into a separate art project, where the photographs are in dialogue with the collages.

Elin has photographed in several cities around Europe and in Norway. The photographs tell stories about the layers of time on city walls, with their traces of old posters, concrete and graffiti. At the same time, they are snapshots. The next day someone has torn down the posters, tagged them or maybe pasted new ones.

The photos show the lyricism in the raw, torn and perishable: Urban poetry in motion.

Jo Straube

Freelance photographer based in Oslo.

Jo has a BA in photojournalism from HiOA (Høgskolen i Oslo & Akershus) fram 2010. He then finished his MA in journalism in 2017. Becoming a professional photographer is mainly a result from working as a photojournalist for Norwegian and foreign newspapers and magazines. In addition, Jo has worked with his own documentary projects, each of them dealing with questions about democracy.

When Jo visited Iceland in 2010, it was to document the repercussions of the financial crisis. Towards the elections in Myanmar in 2015, I portrayed people who, in various ways, were involved or heavily influenced by the great political upheavals in the country, to nuance the image of the country as something more than the Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi who is facing an evil regime.

Between 2013 and 2017 Jo drove thousands of kilometers to visit over 200(!) public libraries all across Norway. He did this “to document the current state of this major institution for an enlightened public”. The project resulted in the book "The Norwegian Library" which won the “Most beautiful photo / art book” award of 2018.

Lars K. Lande w/Madrugada

Lars K. Lande has been on a mission for 20 years. His goal is to capture the sound of live music with a camera lens. He is well aware the futility of his endeavour, but the many beautiful moments he captures while failing in his mission, makes it well worth the struggle.

He claims he is not a photographer, he has just taken a lot of pictures. Pictures of DumDum Boys, Stein Torleif Bjella, Fish (ex Marillon), Madrugada, Mimmi Tamba, Nils Petter Molvær, Savoy, Serena Maneesh, Sivert Høyem, Susanne Sundfør, Turboneger, Vidar Busk, Ulver +++++++

The fact that he has no idea what he is doing, just makes his style of photography all the more his own.

Per Øyvind Skjærvold Johansen

My name is Per Øyvind Skjærvold Johansen, born 1983 in Fredrikstad.

I've been drawing and painting since I was a kid. Graffiti meant a big deal to me back in the late 90's and early 2000's, and has probably played some part in shaping my style of drawing.

Through the years I've worked with illustration, consept art, storyboarding and theater set design. I draw as much as ever, but this time focusing more on personal works. My tools are pen, pencil and ink.

I like to try to capture a moment or an atmosphere, maybe something strange or subtle.

And I rarely leave home without a sketchbook and a set of pens, secretly drawing people, situations, architecture and landscapes.

Tammo Rist

Born in Ravensburg, Germany. Living in Oslo, Norway.

After my education at Universität der Künste Berlin and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf I moved to Norway in 2006. I have since worked in the art field and participated in a number of national and international exhibitions and projects. In recent years, I have worked mostly with digital media (photography and graphics), but also light objects, painting and performance.

In my artistic work I am interested in a deconstruction of the image by a mixture of different techniques to create works that move between classical artistic categories. The works have a biographical character. They are personal and represent places and situations I have been in and somehow caught my attention. The selection follows no major logic, it is the eye and the moment that determines whether it is interesting or not. In this way, many of the works occur spontaneously and are in no way perfect.

Torgrim Ådnegard

From Vats in Hallingdal, born in 1997. Recently finished a 2-year degree in illustration in Oslo.

I like working with various media, including painting, digital painting, analog and digital photography, video etc. Always looking for new stuff to try out and experiment with.

Fascinated by stories from the past, lives that have been lived and old photographs. I also think growing up in the quiet countryside has influenced my work in many ways. I always try to portray a certain mood, and I think my work often has a sense of quietness and silence to it. Sometimes it’s melancholic, sometimes humorous - sometimes both. Always minimalistic.
